Even tho’ this is an American holiday some of us celebrate it, too.
We don’t actually need a specific day to be grateful. For me we need to be grateful everyday.
I remember Oprah telling a story about what Maya Angelou told her when she was going thru something in her life. She was in the bathroom crying her eyes out and she called Maya. She told her about what happened in between her sobs and Maya told her to stop crying. “Stop crying and say thank you”
At first she couldn’t understand why she has to say thank you. But Maya insisted.
So, she stopped crying and said thank you.
Every time I pray it is always a prayer of thanksgiving. I just know that we have to be thankful for everything.
Good or bad.
